I took the starter off today and cleaned the bendix and reinstalled the starter. The tinny rattle sound was still there. Then I got to noticing the sound was coming and going. I was trying to locate the sound and I would lean in to the tractor and it would go away and when I stood up it would start again. "What is going on," I thought to myself. Then I noticed that when I leaned in I was supporting myself with the radius arm. I tested and yes, when I put pressure on the radius arm the sound quietened down. With the tractor running the vibrations were enough to produce the tinny rattle I heard. I haven't noticed this before; it could be the way the tractor was parked. I shut the tractor off and and made a video of the loose radius arm but haven't uploaded it to YouTube.
